A Productive Day

What a productive day we had at the Rios home! We picked school back up like a charm! Our Bible time consisted of reading about two very different Kings of Judah, Wicked Ahaz and his good son Hezekiah. New spelling words were introduced, which Shane seems to have already mastered, so Friday's test will be a breeze. We'll go ahead and do the vocabulary and punctuation exercises for the week and review some past spelling words. Math was mostly review today of multiplication facts and story problems, and so on and so on. Even though we didn't quite get a full day's agenda in, I felt as though our return to our routine was quite flawless.

The entire house got vacuumed.

Master bath received good cleaning!

Three loads of laundry washed, dried, folded, put away.

Spent around 45 minutes on the phone with my health counselor. This is a new service our insurance company is offering as a benefit. Today was my 2nd phone session. The nurse assigned to me is so sweet and easy to talk with. I'm so thankful for this! When I agreed to sign up for the sessions, I was a little concerned about what type of person I would get! We discussed my medications, dosage, weight, uhhum! and many other things. She will call me again in 6 wks. to see if I've succeeded in reaching my goal which is to have lost 5 more lbs. by then. Oh, did I tell y'all that as of Nov. I had lost 25 lbs.!! Yea Me! OF COURSE, THAT WAS BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS!

A little organizing went on in our garage!

A delicious supper cooked by MOI!

Dishes washed and put away. I don't mind doing our dishes by hand since it's just the three of us living here. I seem to only use my dishwasher if we have company or a party, or if a cold bug is going around.

Hubby helped me arrange some antique pitchers and crocks on our plant shelf. I didn't want to return them to top my kitchen cabinets where they had been before Christmas decorations replaced them. I have a different plan for my cabinet tops.

Bills got paid!

Caught up with my emails, ALMOST!

Thanked God several times for my new laptop!

Stopped and praised my Father many times today as I remembered how much pain I was experiencing this same time last year. I'm so happy to have been able to do what I did today!

Now I'm off to kiss my "gummy bear" Shane one last time before crawling into my big, comfy bed!

(((((HUGS))))) Hey Pam! It was so nice seeing your comment this morning. I'm glad you're back. I've read down your list of posts. Sounds like you had a great Christmas and New Years. Tell your "groovey" son I love the pose. lol
I'm having computer problems now so I haven't been visiting blogs like I have in the past. But, Lord willing, that will be taken care of this week.
OH! Did Rita tell you we have another thing in common? Brother Danny Whetstone goes to our church and he preached the other Sunday. Rita said he and your daddy were friends. lol Isn't that hilarious?

Love ya,

And now I need a nap. You accomplished so much that I feel justified in taking some time off.

Bully for you losing all that weight. Keep it up, girlfriend! You can do it! Whoo-hoo!

Wow....you did have a productive day! Alawys makes a person feel good!

Mishel said...

Yeah!! She's back!! Woohoo! : )

And congrats on the weight loss!! I'm proud of you, girl! Our insurance company started offering the same thing--and like you, at first I wasn't sure about it, but it actually has been such a blessing!

So glad to hear from you...

Ashley said...

AWESOME!! I knew you had lost a lot of weight!

Really? A health counselor? Hmmm...I didn't know insurance would over that, or that they worked over the phone. LOL
